Mfr Part #: AM869AHP 8/40 SAN Switch is ideal for organizations requiring a flexible solution that's forward and backward compatible, either as a small "building-block" switch for a departmental fabric or as a high-performance edge switch in larger core-to-edge SAN configurations. The 8/40 SAN Switch enables 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb FC technology in configurations of 24, 32, or 40 ports. A fully populated SAN switch with 40 ports provides an aggregate bandwidth of 680 Gb/s. The 8/40 SAN Switch also allows organizations to use 4 Gb/s SFPs today and upgrade to 8 Gb/s SFPs when required. The optional Integrated Routing provides selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation for higher levels of scalability and fault isolation. The Power Pack+ software provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to monitor the health and performance of the network through a single pane of glass. Enhanced capabilities ensures ample bandwidth for mission-critical applications.
